    You get what you pay for. I don't think I could stand the hard plastic wheels for starters. Then take into consideration the overall construction. That model is for homeowners with large properties; not commercial use.

    I had one of those back in the day.I even got the one they call commercial rubber tires and so on.I had a lot of problems hard to calibrate and figure it out.It sure did rust quick.I would go with the Lesco spreader I know it is alot more money but I have had mine for 6 years now and she still keeps bringing papa home the bacon.

    http://www.earthway.com/2050su.htm <~ This is the model you are talking about, no? Read out loud to yourself, "heavy-duty POLY wheels". Now take a moment, breath deep, here comes the news flash....POLY IS PLASTIC. :hammerhead::dizzy: Once again, you get what you pay for.

    You did get opinions and advice, but you're either too dense or too immature to recognize it. Maybe that's why people like me respond the way we do to people like you. If you think that everyone on this site who attempts to help you by responding to your question is a "dusche bag", then maybe you need to seek advice elsewhere. Maybe your "Polytics" professor can help you.:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Hey work it.. got somethin for you to look at:...

    pneu·mat·ic: Filled with air, especially compressed air: a pneumatic tire.

    Hmm... plastic tires??? POLY TIRES???? :hammerhead: :hammerhead: :hammerhead: :hammerhead: Once again... ****** bag!

    Maybe you should RE READ the post.. and think a little bit.. and you would be talking about the SAME SPREADER.. dickface
